I am going to be upgrading to the X800 XT and I have a question. Would I be able to use the power cable that is shared with a fan? I do have a 420 Watt power supply. I know the 6800 needs 2 that are not shared. Do they make a cable that extends the 4-pin power cable? All I can find are the splitter cables. Thanks

That's not exactly <i>a</i> fan.

A long long time ago, but I can still remember, how that music used to make me smile... <A HREF="http://www.nexus.hu/zonix/DIGGER.MID" target="_new"><b><font color=blue>Digger rulz</font color=blue></b></A>

That's true, but i've seen 120mm fans that draws 3amp from the 12V rail.

I've got three 120mm fans(not connected to anything :( ) that need a 48 volts to run. (I'm not sure but I think they need 1.something amps).

I'm pretty sure that the original poster meant a little HSF/regular fan though
